This function is called whenever the activation function of a real object is called.

When the real object is already tracked by debugobjects it is checked, whether the object can be activated. Activating is not allowed for active and destroyed objects. When debugobjects detects an error, then it calls the fixup_activate function of the object type description structure if provided by the caller. The fixup function can correct the problem before the real activation of the object happens. E.g. it can deactivate an active object in order to prevent damage to the subsystem.

When the real object is not yet tracked by debugobjects then the fixup_activate function is called if available. This is necessary to allow the legitimate activation of statically allocated and initialized objects. The fixup function checks whether the object is valid and calls the debug_objects_init() function to initialize the tracking of this object.

When the activation is legitimate, then the state of the associated tracker object is set to ODEBUG_STATE_ACTIVE.
